                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to DAL SHANG once again!  What's with CAUSEY?  He actually beat 
SAND DANCERS' NORVAN TEN KOGAN, and walked away with 50 more points from the fight.  
Laughs were big at DAL SHANG while they watched MASTER OF THE EDGE clobber 
NOCALLLISTEXEMPTION.  He lost 17 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the 
stands.  I can barely restrain my enthusiam for SAND DANCERS' outstanding member, 
Duelmaster LORAND TEN SORN.  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  How well I know the feeling 
of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, THE CAUSEY WAY!  The 
bums at BASH BROS EVANGELIST couldn't face the challenges from THE CAUSEY WAY!  No 
excuse for that!   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  CAUSEY killed NORVAN TEN KOGAN, and expects revenge 
from SAND DANCERS.  The dead are better off dead--they have no worries.  CAUSEY of 
THE CAUSEY WAY has spared NORVAN TEN KOGAN from the boredom of a warrior's 
retirement...  But I doubt SAND DANCERS is grateful.  And this week the 
Duelmaster--whoops!  SCRABBLE has one week left to avenge FAQIR's death by excessive 
hits on the part of GORBAN TEN SKORA of SAND DANCERS.  Here's some advice:  study 
your opponent, master many skills, fight dirty.   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  All work 
and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen
